Parents and Students,
    Beginning April 27th, DHS will begin the End of Year (EOY) PARCC Assessment.  The EOY is the second half of the PARCC assessment.  The portion we just completed was a performance-based assessment requiring human scoring, which is why it was administered in early March. The EOY is the portion of the test that is computer scored.  A common misconception is that the EOY is measuring growth from March to April.  That is not the case.  The two assessments simply assess the Colorado Academic Standards in a different manner.

    The schedule we will follow is shown below.

We have finalized our PARCC testing schedule for 9th-11th graders. The schedule below reflects our desire to minimize the impact of testing on our classes and our overall school schedule. As such, our bell schedule will remain the same throughout the testing period, and we will run classes as usual.  

Students will test in small groups based on their Language Arts class. They will test either in the morning session or the afternoon session, depending on when they have Language Arts. Students who have Language Arts period 1-4 will test in the morning session; students who have Language Arts period 5-7 will test during the afternoon session. 

Morning session:  8:30-10:30;    
Afternoon session:  T-Th 1:00-3:00  (Monday 12:30-2:30)

March 2nd-6th:  9th graders test M-F in either the morning session or the afternoon session.
March 9th-13th: 10th graders test M-F in either the morning session or the afternoon session.
March 16th-20th: 11th graders test M-F, either the morning session or the afternoon session.
